american people have gotten to see mitt romney up close as he offers his vision of the future, and what he would do as president. but even more startling is the president's complete failure to put forth an agenda for the next four years. >> people want to know they have a strong, steady hand in the oval office and they don't want someone who is reckless. we all remember his "dukes of hazard" tour of international destinations over the summer. >> but tonight's session on foreign policy, which sounded weeks ago like a potential mismatch, an incumbent president responsible for the death of osama bin laden in the ring against a one-term governor with little foreign policy experience now looks like a fairer fight. the president's edge on who would make a better commander in chief has slipped from eight points a month ago to just three. he leads romney 44-41 on that issue in our new poll. overall, the president leads romney on who is best equipped to handle foreign policy by eight points. 46-38. but romney is viewed as a viable alternative. tonight's format will break down this way. moderator
